To: Fulcrum Search Science Inc. Clients and Contacts

From: Bruce McAlpine, President

It is with mixed emotions that I wish to announce that John Maybury is retiring at the end of May 2007.

Since joining Fulcrum Search Science Inc. in 1999, John has been a leader in every sense of the word. Consultant of the Year 3 out of the last 4 years, John has led the team in sales and repeat business, demonstrating our values of high quality work, strong client relationships, and personal integrity. John has also been a thought leader, investing in his own professional development through industry courses, and sharing his learning with the team. Finally, John has been an inspirational and emotional leader, always coming along side the newer team members for a coffee and a word of encouragement at just the right time.

John will be sorely missed by his clients, his networks, and his team mates.

Please join me in thanking John Maybury for his years of outstanding service to Fulcrum Search Science Inc. and in wishing him well as he prepares for the next chapter of his life.

As well, FSS frequently matches personal fund raising efforts by employees. At the core of this is
FSS’s philosophy: Serve as a model to others.

  • Children’s Aid Foundation – Fulcrum Search Science Inc. is a proud partner of the Children’s Aid Foundation. In partnership with Children’s Aid Society Toronto, Fulcrum Search Science Inc. Began the Fulcrum Search Science Endowed Education Fund in 2006.
  • As a leader in the executive search industry, Fulcrum works with corporations to help the find the most qualified candidates for their specific needs. As such, we recognize the value of post-secondary education. Through our partnership with Children’s Aid Foundation, we are committed to assisting high–risk youth in achieving their full potential in their careers and life by helping them financially to meet their educational goals.
